Stayed for 1 night. We had room 3 which was adequate however has a connecting door to another room. Let's just say you can hear everything inc what's happening in the bathroom. So if you like your privacy I wouldn't reccomend. I noticed a comment in another review about the house smelling of cooking oil, this is most certainly the... More

We stayed here for one night just before our wedding, upon arrival we were upgraded to a larger room for free because they knew we were getting married, which we thought was really lovely of them. The room was large with a four poster bed, 2 single beds, put up beds in the wardrode and even a spare mattress under... More

The breakfast is great a big choice and all... More

The Whitleaf is a lovely detached house on the edge of Croyde. It is a reasonable walk to the restaurants and the beach (even through the short cut) and as parking in the centre of Croyde is impossible/expensive, you do need to be mobile. Our room was of a reasonable B&B size with a good en suite. Sue was friendly... More

Stayed here with my partner (beach volleyball partner, that is) for the annual king and queen of the beach tournament. Arrival was easy as it is situated just before the main road from Barnstaple narrows in the centre of Croyde. With just a few hundred yards to the centre and a path leading straight down to the beach starting right... More

We had a large room with four poster bed and two singles, which was very clean. There were some bits for children to play with. The bathroom was big with separate shower and bath. Again clean. Unfortunately, the decor was dated and the house smelt of cooking oil. We'd also prefer duvets but had sheets and blankets instead. Breakfast was... More

Just had 5 days here and couldn't have been more relaxing. Sue & Dave,the owners, were great.They couldn't do enough for us. Sue supplied us with maps and information about the area. The choice of food at breakfast was enormous. Really enjoyed our stay.Would defineately go back.

Probably best to regard The Whiteleaf as a B and B rather than a Hotel, as it wasn't quite what we were expecting. You'll find Sue is a friendly and welcoming host, and the option for an evening meal is useful, as Croyde is not a large place and consequently doesn't have many places to eat out. The dining option... More
